hi there,

it seems to me that the 'meet me' mechanic allows for too easy killing of anyone you manage to talk to, by telling them to meet on your ship, then taking off and ejecting them.

i imagine this is a unintended effect of the relatively new button, but i want to add that i kinda like the idea of luring people on your ship to abduct/kill them (and i dont know if would be president without) but it should be harder to accomplish, maybe only close friends would come on your ship?

Yes, I can see how this is a problem. In practice you only get this button once you're at a certain level of relationship - you have to have a 'social/green' level before they'll do it. I might up that to 'personal/blue' level if it feels too easy...

im not sure if i understand your post correctly.
it reads to me like right now, i should not be able to get people with a 'white' relationship to meet with me
i just rechecked on 7adf788 and i am able to do exactly that!

a general prerequisite of green relationship to use the 'meet me' button sounds reasonable, who would react to such a request from someone he just talked do for 2 minutes at some space-bar?

for the kill mechanic im not sure. it would certainly feel a lot less gamey when requiring green, as right now i can kill just anyone, without witnesses and therefore drawbacks (afaik). it might, however still feel too easy to just get that president to green then instantly remove him from office.

maybe requiring blue to meet in a 'non public' place would make sense?

going from green to blue generally is not a big deal but yeah, i dont know how else it could be limited while still allowing me to murder my way to the top by luring people on my ship [biggrin]

anyway, thats all just my thoughts. if you keep me from being able to slaughter anybody without repercussions, i will be happy [smile]

Ok cool: I'll check and fix that as luring on white is definitely wrong. Thanks!

It's way worse than that, Chris. You can book passage on a ship with someone then eject them from their own ship!

You can certainly fly it. I didn't keep it beyond that as I wasn't sure when the next autosave was.

Lol - I thought I'd fixed that exploit, but will take another look.
